is an American writer, commentator, activist, world renowned poet, powerful literary voice, and educator, currently at Virginia Tech. She is also one of the best known African American poets who reached prominence during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Her poetry reflects her own evolving awareness and experiences, starting from child to young women, seasoned civil rights activist to lecturer and educator, with all the steps between. Giovanni’s poetry expresses strong racial pride and respect for her family while her informal style makes her accessible to both children and adults. As the author of over 30 books and a Grammy nominee, her focus is on the individual and the power one can have on oneself as well as in the lives of others.
Bringing together a group of Chicana, Latina, and Indigenous women artists, Entre NosOtr@s aims to create a space to engage how race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality impact the work these local artists do in the Phoenix Metro area.
